T-Mobile USA, Inc. today announced the upcoming availability of the Samsung
SGH-T939 Behold II Android smartphone which looks like a mix of the
Samsung Galaxy and
Samsung Galaxy Lite.
The Behold II is a full touch-screen phone integrating the open and innovative
Android with Samsung's next generation
interface (previously available for Samsung's propriety OS and Windows Mobile
only) and T-Mobile's high-speed 3G network for a rich mobile experience. The
sleek touch-screen phone is the first from T-Mobile USA to feature a 3.2" AMOLED
screen, which provides crisper colors and wider viewing angles.
Samsung's innovative TouchWiz user interface allows easy customization with
widgets located in a slide out tray on the left side of the home screen and
providing one-touch access to a customer's favorite and most commonly used
features and applications. The Behold II offers three different homescreens to
drag and drop widgets onto the screen and organize the different workspaces with
favorite widgets and application shortcuts. Samsung's intuitive cube menu also
provides quick access to six top multimedia features, including music, photos,
videos, the Web, YouTube and Amazon MP3 for music downloads.
The Behold II will keep customers organized and entertained with access to
built-in Google mobile services, including Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail,
YouTube and Google Talk as well as thousands of applications and games available
for download from Android Market. The WiFi-enabled Behold II also supports
personal E-Mail and corporate E-Mail with Exchange ActiveSync, as well as
instant messaging, and text, picture and video messaging. Additional features
include a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, five shooting modes and
video capabilities, visual voicemail which allows customers to listen to
voicemails in order of preference, MP3 player, up to 16GB of external memory,
assisted GPS and Bluetooth 2.1.
Following the success of its predecessor, the Samsung Behold, the Behold II
will be available exclusively from T-Mobile and is currently scheduled to launch
before the start of the holidays. A price wasn't announced today.
